Here you will find a mixed display of different browser technologies used on our site to show if your browser is compatible. There are also a few additional displays to give you some general info about your browser. If your browser doesn't pass the tests, and you wish to update it by downloading either Internet Explorer (which this site is designed and optimised for) or Netscape Communicator.
The first test is of your browsers CSS compatibility. The below text should be some red text with a light blue background. If your browser cannot display CSS, then it will show a heading with no background colour and not centred showing "CSS not recognised!".
CSS not recognised! Some Red Text
Next we will do a test of your browsers VBScript compatibility. Typically, only Microsoft browsers will support this. If successfull, you will see a message displaying "VBScript is enabled and working!". If unsuccessful, old browsers should show "VBScript not recognised by this browser!", while newer non-complient browsers will show nothing.
Here you can see if you have Java enabled. If you do, you will se the applets running. Otherwise you will se nothing.
The below scripts will show you your screen's resolution details. These include your screen width, height and depth. Most browsers will show 5 details which will look like this: "Your screen color depth is:", "Your screen width is:", "Your screen height is:", "Your viewable width is:" and "Your viewable height is:". If not, your browser will display "Screen Resolution script not recognised by this browser!", or may show some details blank.
The next section displays a list of plug-ins installed on your system for your browser. As above, if successfull, you will see text displaying "The following plug-ins are installed on your system:" followed by the installed plug-ins. If there are no plug-ins for your browser installed, you will see nothing. Old browsers will show "Plug-In script not recognised by this browser!", while newer non-compliant browsers may show nothing.
